Portal/IDB/icon-wiki-portal.png

Debian wiki bugs portal. This portal covers all aspects of reporting and working on bugs in Debian.

BTS (for Bug Tracking System) is a software created by the Debian Project for its own needs. It provides the following functionality:

  • Web interface for viewing and browsing bugs
  • Can be controlled via email
  • Users do not need to authenticate in order to report issues
  • Filters to show different classes of bugs (ex.: having patches, with solution pending, already fixed, fixed in upstream, regarding localisation issues, etc.)
  • User-defined tags

  • Many more

Reporting bugs

When reporting a bug, please include the following information:

  • What are you trying to do?
  • How can the problem be reproduced (actions, commands...)
  • What is the expected behavior?
  • What happens instead?
  • Version of the software
  • Debian version/release

reportbug will automatically add relevant parts of your system configuration to bug reports.

If the bug affects all users of the software (not exclusively Debian), it is sometimes better to report it to Debian and directly to the program developers/maintainers. Consult the official website of the software for information on how to report bugs.
